James Rodriguez, EVE at WOL ($10,500): James is the most expensive forward on the slate, but he takes a majority of set pieces for Everton and could be very popular in cash games and GPPs. The presence of Lucas Digne ($7,200, defender) could make some people weary of paying this much for a player on a slate with few pay-down options, especially because he's an underdog, but he has an excellent floor from shots, chances created and crosses, which could be key on a slate that's not expected to have many goals.
Adama Traore, WOL v. EVE ($7,600): On the other side of James' game is Traore, who also has a good floor, though he doesn't have any role on set pieces. Those responsibilities mostly go to Pedro Neto ($9,800), who comes in with the fifth-most floor points in the Premier League this season, trailing only Jack Grealish, Bruno Fernandes, Kevin De Bruyne and Andrew Robertson.

While he doesn't take many shots, Traore is averaging 2.01 chances created, 5.50 crosses and 3.06 fouls drawn per 90 minutes this season, giving him one of the highest average floors
